    Nafplion is among the most beautiful cities in Greece. Sandwiched between two fortress crowned peaks, the old Greek capital is filled with beautiful old buildings, villas and fortifications, making the undisputed jewel of the Peloponese. There is a huge amount to see and do from a Nafplion villa, from the beaches of the Pelopennese to the world famous archaeological discoveries of Mycenae and Epidaurus.

    Things to do on holiday to Nafplion, Greece

    There is a huge amount to see whilst you wander the streets of Nafplion. As you arrive for the first time, the route through the suburbs is fairly unprepossessing, but once you arrive at the seafront, the maze of cobbled streets will almost certainly make you fall in love with the town. The old centre is wonderfully romantic, with plenty of seafood restaurants, beach cafes and atmospheric tavernas in which to sit and look out over the water towards the Bourtzi island fortress. Tours to the Bourtzi Fortress leave from the harbour. The oldest fortress, the Akonafplia is well worth investigating from Nafplion accommodation, as is the Palamidi Castle high above the town.

    Nafplion is not a beach town yet there are some magnificent places to place your towel within walking distance of the centre of town. The most popular is Arvanitia Beach, a short walk from Palamidi, although Karathona has the finest sand. If you are looking for more beach facilities, the beach resorts of Kios and Irion are both under 15 minutes away by car.

    There are also stunning archaeological sites in and around Nafplion. The impressive ruins of Tiryns and Asine are fascinating, and the panoramic views across the countryside are equally spectacular. However, two of the most spectacular places to visit from a self catering Nafplion property have to be the UNESCO acclaimed ruins of Mystras and the sensational Theatre of Epidaurus, carved from bare rock.
